An architectural model for network interconnection

    Abstract

    This paper presents a technique of successive decomposition of a common users' activity to illustrate the problems of network interconnection. The criteria derived from this approach offer a structuring principle which is used to develop an architectural model that embeds heterogeneous subnetworks into a global network. The architectural model is proposed to be included in the network layer of the ISO Reference Model for Open Systems Interconnection (OSI/RM). The interconnection of LANs and WANs is used as an example.
